  1. Allow AppUser in developer sandbox to use API to create metadata instances in folders in production.

    Metadata is set up in folders in our production via API by AppUser in the developer sandbox.
    However, metadata templates belong to the production, and production-ready applications are not supported.
    Therefore, we can set item values for the configured metadata instances, but we cannot create metadata instances.

  3. Assign Tasks to Box Notes

    We want to be able to assign Tasks to a Box Note similar to the way you can add a General Task or Approval Task to a document.

  4. ”Box Edit” ”logs”

    About the addition of the automatic log deletion function of Box Edit

    I understood that the current maximum value for log storage is as follows
    (現在のログ保存の最大値は以下のようになっていると理解しています。)

    ・Box Edit log: 5 files with a maximum of 5MB per day
    ・Local Com Server Log: 5 files of up to 5MB per day
    ・Upgrade Service Log: 10 files with a maximum of 10MB per day

    Although there is an upper limit per day, the Box Edit logs will continue to accumulate forever.
    We are concerned that if we use the system for a long period of time, the storage capacity will keep increasing…

  5. Support infix (middle of the word) matching such as %ox%.

    It would be more efficient if infix matching is available for at least metadata search, or even just metadata search and folder/file name search.

  6. Convert BoxNote to PDF, DOCX, etc...

    BoxNotes would be much more useful if there was an ability to able to generate a PDF or other document format that can be stored in a more traditional method in Box. Some customer that work in the regulated space can't use BoxNotes for various reasons. But, in many cases there is an issue with the fact that BoxNotes does not follow the same retention capabilities we have in Governance. Also, Keysafe does not support BoxNotes, so it may be a workaround if BoxNotes were archivable.

    The initial idea would be to support PDF generation, but i can also see…

  7. Show file/metadata info from Photoshop image files

    Photographers submit their images to our Box account for use in our publications. The industry standard is for professional photographers to add metadata like the photo credit and caption to each photo using the "File Info" tool in Photoshop. Unfortunately, after doing so and then uploading the images to Box, the metadata added in Photoshop is not visible in Box's metadata section. Please consider exposing this info under "details" or "metadata."

    Extra credit: Allow us to edit that same metadata in Box. Doing so would allow the correct credit and caption info to flow into our InDesign layouts. Saving lots…

  8. Co-admin should be able to login to other co-admin accounts and service accounts

    Box co-admin should have the ability to log into other co-admin accounts and application services accounts to manage content. Today, you rely on using Box APIs or the primary Box admin account. It would be more convenient for coadmins to use the Box webapp instead.

  9. Jump to the same path on Box Drive directly from Box Web

    Like Dropbox app, we would like a capability to move directly from Box Web to Box Drive. The usecase behind this is that we want to edit a file from Box Drive not Box Edit but want to search on Box Web.

    Thanks for your great suggestion! We know this capability would be hugely valuable. This is not something we’re currently working on, but we’re always considering feedback from customers like you in how we work with Microsoft to enhance secure productivity and collaboration.

  11. Make sync actually work correctly and reliably

    Box seems to have abandoned any effort to improve sync. It has the same problems that it had 5? 6? 7? years ago. It takes forever to sync. It consumes huge amounts of CPU. It gets hung up all the time. A former associate who was friends with an employee of Box once (about 5 years ago) complained to the friend about the problems with sync. The employee's response: "use sync less." That appears to be Box's strategy: they don't fix the problems with the program; rather, their advice is use the program less. That's pathetic. Fix your software.

  12. filter the activity report with specific classification

    We want to get the activity reports for specific classification(just like specifying the folder).

    We need to audit user activities for confidential files every quarter. Current activity reports can only specify the user, date, folder and action, not classification.

  14. virus metadata

    With the virus scan metadata template that is available on an account with shield and virus scan on, I would like to see this metadata applied and visible on all files in my organization, not just those that have been detected as containing malicious content.

    It looks like the template was designed for wide spread application since its "scan status" fields contain results such as clean, suspicious,unscanned and unknown along with the malicious result.

    In this way we could have better understanding of how the box antivirus saw a file and be more wary when the results are such as…

  15. Feature requests

    I wish Box notes were more like DropBox Paper. Top things I like:


    • The editor is essentially a live Markdown editor so nearly all formatting doesn’t require leaving the keyboard.

    • Full support for Markdown export.

    • Comments can be attached to each paragraph - so much better than the one thread per Box note.

    • Links are properly clickable without the silly ‘link bubble’

    • Auto-generated ToC

  16. Add 'share current page' tickbox to sharing popup

    As a user, I want to be able to share the current page of a file I'm previewing in Box so that I can direct my colleagues to a specific point in a slide deck as opposed to the start

  17. Box Drive: Support ARM processors

    The new Microsoft Surface Pro X uses an ARM based processor and Box Drive doesn't support ARM processors. I'm sure use of the ARM processors will increase rapidly since it allows for much longer battery life and support cellular data connections.

  18. Create Pages and collapsable sections within Box Notes

    Add a feature that allows multiple Pages and Sections within a single Box Note, similar to OneNote.

    Also add a feature that allows for a collapsible section within a single Box Note - for example to use for different topics at an event, or different days at a conference - instead of making a new Note for each topic/day.

  20. new tab opens for link destination

    It would be nice to be shown link destination in a new tab or window (w/o right clicking function) when clicking on URLs/hyperlinks for comments, search results etc. on Box.
    Jumping to link destinations in the same windows makes me unhappy cause I have to re-open original site each time.
